St. Helen School strives to educate the whole person in an atmosphere of academic excellence. Our curriculum follows the curriculum guidelines of the Archdiocese of Miami and is in compliance with the state education requirements. It is designed to prepare students to succeed and prepare them for any rigorous middle and high school academic programs by providing a firm foundation in fundamental knowledge and skills; encouraging intellectual exposure and depth of study; and inspiring creativity and critical analysis. Solid as it is, our curriculum is in a continuous state of evolution as we aim to equip each new incoming class with the tools, confidence, abilities demanded by our increasingly complex world, and with a small class number, teachers are able to assist students to attend their goals on a one-on-one basis.
The core curriculum consists of

The emphasis on essential knowledge in our core curriculum is time-tested and well-proven to best prepare students for the road ahead, regardless of the academic path they may choose.
